A PHILIPPINES SHELL ORNAMENT

Lot Essay

Cf. Ellis, G. et al., The People and Art of the Philippines, Los Angeles, 1981, p. 246, ill. 249, où il écrit: "The Isneg have combined shell ornaments of this type [with winged pendants], along with triangular shell shapes and beads to form the sipattal, perhaps the single most striking example of jewelry found on the Cordillera. Worn suspended from on the chest or less frequently down the back, from a beaded collar, these neck pieces are reserved for special occasions when they are donned by both men and women."
